No one could explain the five-hour blackout that crippled Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s (NAIA) Terminal 3, which cancelled numerous domestic and international flights. In the end, Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) general manager Jose Angel Honrado chalked it up to bad luck.
But this bad luck is one of many, including a collapsed ceiling, one death and one with serious injuries when both victims jumped from the 3rd level of the airport on separate occasions, one suicide attempt, and another death when a security guard was thrown off a motorcycle.
To combat this, an unnamed official suggested to NAIA-3 manager Octavio Lina to hire a feng shui expert who can find out if anything is wrong with the building’s design and exorcise the “evil spirits.” He also suggested local shamans to make sure the exorcism is complete.
Lina is considering telling Honrado the suggestions.
Superstitious airport officials said that a community and a church were demolished when the terminal was built, and that rituals could “rectify” the situation. However, a new church was already built on the last one’s site.
